All The King's Horses

All the king's horses and all the king's men Couldn't put our love back together again You've broken the trust that acts as the glue There's nothing to fix between me and you The words that we used are now said in vain The memories we grew are reminders of pain The smiles that we shared are lost to the past The promises we made, destined not to last Our love has been banished because of your lies Your repeated transgressions have broken all ties "I'm sorry" to me is but a very old song That tells of the things that always went wrong A knight I was not, I made no such claim I promised no fortune, I promised no fame I promised no castle that stood on a hill But yet you promised your love to me still 'Twas a dragon called lust that tore us apart His flame of desire has captured your heart And all the king's horses and all the king's men Couldn't put our love back together again

An excellent poem. If flows smoothly and the rhymes are perfect. A sad situation, though. Very well written, Larry.
